Lost World of Tambun – Ipoh Theme Park Attraction
In the lust of hidden greenery of Ipoh, a fully water park theme appears to emerge from the surrounding limestone cliffs and vibrant jungle, waiting to be explored. The Lost World of Tambun comes as part of 3D2N of my Ipoh trip.
Lost World of Tambun @ Ipoh
I’d bought tickets for Lost World of Tambun from MATTA Fair which cost me under RM30 per pax. As this is non-comparable to Sunway Lagoon, I would give a try because it sounds a mystery world to me. Hence, this trip is made off.
There are 8 part of Lost World of Tambun that comes ranging from river of adventure, raging waterfalls, rushing rapids, majestic cliffs, magnificent tigers, ancient caves and hot springs with ancient therapeutic properties.
- Petting Zoo
- Tin Valley
- Amusement Park
- Team Building
- Hotspring Spa
- Swan Lake
- Water Park
- Tiger Valley
An Ipoh trip is incomplete without going for famous food.
7.00am – Famous Foh San Dim Sum in Ipoh town
Our day started with full of expectation. A day trip filled up with various adventures and fun from Lost World of Tambun. We planned a breakfast as usual hangout whenever I stay in Ipoh, that’s Foh San Dim Sum.
It’d shifted to new outlet quite some time. For those few years didn’t come to Ipoh for this famous place, you’ll not be lost because it’s moved nearby from original outlet.
Foh San … famous for dim sum
Breezy morning … dim sun served with chinese tea

A considered non-heavy breakfast for us here, which cost us around RM40+.

We managed to spend time for the whole day to make it worth our money. The Lost World of Tambun is not a boring place where a lot more activities and games can be play if you want. I skipped most of the games because I prefer to mix around with water activities.
Again, after we walked out towards EXIT, we hadn’t had much to go for night activities, therefore we bid a good early rest at night.
A day after shall conclude our 3D2N Ipoh Trip.
